The Wall Street Journal: British lawmaker may release Facebook data-policy documents

When a small app developer sued Facebook Inc. in 2015 over how it restricts access to user data, the action got little attention, in part because the social-media giant successfully sought to have most of the court records sealed.

Now that lawsuit is adding to Facebook’s FB, -2.29% mounting headaches, with a British lawmaker saying on Sunday that he has obtained documents from the case and is considering releasing them to the public.

Damian Collins, chairman of the House of Commons Digital, Media, Culture and Sport Committee, said he had secured the documents from Six4Three LLC, which sued Facebook in 2015 alleging that its data policies were anticompetitive and favored certain companies over others.
